TWD: Honey-Wheat Cookies
For this week's Tuesday's with Dorie recipe, Michelle of Flourchild chose Honey-Wheat Cookies.
The name pretty much sums them up. They were chock full of wheat germ inside and had a healthy dusting of wheat germ outside. A generous amount of honey pairs with the wheat germ so that it almost seems like you're having a healthy snack.
To be honest, I went back and forth between thinking these cookies were OK and thinking something was a little off. It wasn't until I read the discussion on the TWD forum that I realized what it was. I thought the amount of honey was a little over-whelming and they were a tad too sweet. Maybe cutting the honey by half would have made these better... it seems that a lot of other TWD bakers really liked them a lot.
OK, seems that's all I've got to say...if you'd like to see the recipe, you can stop by Michelle's blog or get yourself a copy of Dorie Greenspan's book, "Baking, From my Home to Yours".
